Ginepri is good to watch

Moves well, dissects the court well especially with the backhand, goes for winners.
Doesn't grunt or celebrate like a monkey, hits a good winner and immediately puts his head down and walks back to the baseline.

Deserves more fans.

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

Too bad he only plays well a few times a year and SHIT the other 10 months.

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

I haven't seen him play a lot in the past 5 years because his ranking has been so shit, but I remember him playing ridiculously well during the US hard court season in 05, almost making the USO finals, and he's always played Federer very close in subsequent matches over the years.

When he's playing even remotely well he's a much better player than Robredo, Fish, Acasuso etc. but they've all somehow had a better career than he has.

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

He has a good game, but his personality is as exciting as an ironing board. He isn't very marketable for the U.S. since he's so stiff, and his lack of motivation in patches of the season have always affected his ranking. Deep down inside through the mess, he's a great player though.

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

He's turned into just about the biggest choker on tour the last 2 years, so today's result is all the more impressive for it (winning after dumping a 2 set lead, and being broken serving for the match).

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

I like his 2-handed BH, very simple movement and he can take it either way. Always expected more from him but consistency (mentality?) has been an issue.

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

He is great to watch, but his motivational and confidence issues make him hard to really be a fan of unless you are truly dedicated to following him.

When he's playing well, he doesn't have many weaknesses at all.

True. He's dull, dumb and never has anything remotely interesting to say in interviews.

Re: Ginepri is good to watch

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by May 2018

Alexander Zverev will be No 1 by Dec 2018

he's got himself an adequate fan who started this thread

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

So you know him personally, then?

QFT. I remember noticing him before the USO 05 and listening to an interview he gave after a match he'd won where he spoke in a monotone all the way through and I gave up. I've tried to like him, but I just can't, and his game hasn't been consistent enough for me to like either.

Seen plenty of off-court interviews with the guy and have heard this from more than one person that met him.

If you think he's full of charisma, than each to his own.

How does charisma=intelligence?
And he seems boring in interviews, but he might not like to be very open in interviews. Which I don't think is uncommon amongst players...
